Famous people quotes-Benjamin Franklin's social wit

Dr Benjamin Franklin was not really a doctor; his title Doctor was one of those first honorariums given a man of great achievement and reflects the impact he had on his age.

Here are seven ways Benjamin Franklin would suggest you consider to be seen as one with a brain and a social wit.

1. Elevate, not desecrate. Never use cutting humour, dissect theirs.

2. Keep your humour light, fun, open to participation.

3. Reflect your humour to show you row your own boat.

4. You row merrily, and you attract others to you.

5. As you deflect bitterness, fear, answers appear.

6. Your summary encapsulates the situation and hints that the best way out may be to back up to where we went wrong, once we all clearly agree what that was.

7. Elevate, even exaggerate, achievement. Mock an obvious folly but with a twist. If attacked, return their volley as a mirror.
